Boston College forward Deontae Hawkins to Forego Sixth Year, Turn Pro

Boston College forward Deontae Hawkins to Forego Sixth Year, Turn Pro

In news that was somewhat expected, I can confirm that Boston College fifth-year senior forwardA Deontae HawkinsA has decided to forego a sixth year of eligibility and turn pro, signing with Imperial Sports yesterday.

Hawkins was eligible for a sixth year, but already age 24 and having professional aspirations, Hawkins and the BC staff decided it would be best for him to turn pro and pursue European opportunities.

While he only was able to play in 7 games, Hawkins still played a huge role last year. While nobody will recognize it, Hawkins played a massive role in changing the culture at Boston College, bringing a winning attitude and lead-by-example type of leadership, teaching the younger guys on the team how to win games and compete on and off the court.

The 6-foot-8, 220 pound forward from Dayton, Ohio transferred to Boston College for his graduate transfer year after three seasons at Illinois State. He was expected to play a major role, and early on in the season, he was living up to those expectations.

In just 7 full games prior to suffering a season ending knee injury against Nebraska, Hawkins posted numbers of 12.4 points and 9.1 rebounds per game, posting double doubles in 4 games, including his final three.
